Reviews

"Ms. Bambara grabs you by the throat...she dazzles, she charms." --Chicago Daily News

"Among the best portraits of black life to have appeared in some time." -- Saturday Review

"Bambara presents situations that build like improvisations on a melody....As drawn with spirit and subtlety. [Her characters] are-even in their defeats-a pleasure to watch."

-- Newsweek
